The UEFA Euro 1992 Final was played between Denmark and Germany on 26 June 1992 at Ullevi in Gothenburg, Sweden, to determine the winner of UEFA Euro 1992.[3] This was Germany's first tournament since the nation's unification.

Underdogs Denmark took the lead in the first half from a John Jensen right-footed shot into the top right-hand corner of the net from just inside the penalty box.[4] Denmark sealed the victory with a second goal from Kim Vilfort with 12 minutes to go, Vilfort shooting low left footed in off the bottom-right corner of the post and past Bodo Illgner. With this result, Denmark captured their first-ever major championship at the expense of the defending World Champions. [5][6]
